The Timeless Elegance of Black
In the world of fashion, black has always held a place of distinction, be it Dior’s little black cocktail dress, Armani’s androgynous black boardroom suit or Chanel’s iconic black quilted handbag. In the world of fur, black mink is the most popular of all furs and Black NAFA reigns as the most prestigious of all.
Each year NAFA invites a designer to create a very unique garment in Black NAFA to serve as the signature piece of their international marketing campaign. For 2011, Zhang Zhifeng of China’s most exclusive fur design house, NE Tiger, was selected for this honor.
Mr. Zhang enthusiastically accepted the request and noted, “Black NAFA has always been one of my favorite furs for design. The soft, silky touch and luxurious texture make it a designer’s dream fabric.”
His floor-sweeping gown in Black NAFA is jewel encrusted and sensuously body hugging. The focal point however, is a stunning silk embroidery that delicately relates a story of Chinese mythology.
The beauty of Black NAFA mink is timeless and universal. The expression of culture through fashion has added to the mystique of NAFA’s signature garment. Mr. Zhang has captured some of the wonderment of China and, without a word, shared a magical story.
